Not recommended... You will have headache getting the crossover right (if it's possible in the first place).

The AE speakers are powered speakers with no decoding or surround function. You need a source or a processor for this.

You can use them for a 5.1 surround, which means you need 5 speakers and a sub.

But you can also listen to DTS in stereo, which may suffice for some listeners.

@petetherock , thanks for the enlightenment. Anw will a soundbar that can decode DTS a better choice over AE5? Wondering what to get for my room as 5.1 system will be quite messy.
